Ridiculous

Sunday, May 03, 2009
I'm not going to say where I saw it, but I found the following sign atop a loading dock for a building that offered indoor bicycle storage. I found it to be the most ridiculous sign I'd seen in a while.

Sign says 'walk bikes for the safety of everyone'

As far as I can tell, the sign has nothing to do with safety - at least not directly. The idea of safety is a front; the sign really should say "To decrease our liability..." The sign is only there because the property owners could be sued if it weren't and someone were to be hurt.

I understand that there are times that "this is just the way the world works", and we all play along with the game. However, I dislike it being so blatant. This sort of thing is all around; I'm not sure why this was the one to push my buttons.
